Directing Opioid Education Courses
By 2017, all New York state controlled substances prescribers will be required to undergo three hours of opioid-specific continuing education. Under the leadership of Hospital for Special Surgery's Director of Pain Management, I led a three-person video team to interview ten different providers - ranging from clinical pharmacists to the surgeon-in-chief - providing HSS prescribers (and external viewers) with a look at the comprehensive, service line reforms happening to make opioid prescribing safer in the acute and chronic pain settings. I created all graphics and data visualizations.
Segments of the two-hour video series have been presented at HSS medical staff conferences, used in senior management meetings, and help bridge gaps in departmental prescribing practice.
